Birth of R. Shalom Dovber in the year which the Tzemach Tzedek termed Kitra (1) ("crown") - 5621 (1860).

He was named for the Mitteler Rebbe (2) and half the name of the Tzemach Tzedek's father. (3)

Every year my father delivered a Maamar on his birthday, but he did so secretly except when it coincided with Shabbat.

On his last birthday here on earth (4) he said the Maamar Natata Lirei'echa Neiss... (5)

When he concluded he said to me, "on one's birthday he should say Chassidus. May G-d give you a gift that you may say Chassidus on your birthday, but it should be with kindness and mercy."

It took seven years for this to happen. (6)

(1920) upon his father's demise.
